Did you know that in a past life I was a fox? It’s possible I was a coyote, I can’t quite be sure at this point. There’s just something about these highly adaptable and somewhat miniature wolves that captures my imagination, but these wild dogs terrify me as well. Growing up in rural Washington State we saw our share of coyotes. Our two border collies, as fast as they were, could never even come close to catching the coyotes that would swiftly pass over the property. Coyotes killed a fair share of our pets and livestock over the years, but I never felt angry about it, I just forgave them immediately, even as a very young girl I could never hate them.
